      Or even was my raise on the flop right? I suppose it let me find out where I stood in the hand, but it was a pretty expensive way to find out I'm second best with only a pair of 7s...

      Hey lollujo,

      On the flop I would just consider my hand a made hand because any Jx would also beat you if you had QQ+, so in that way 77 aren't worse. Therefore I would just push all-in against his donk. However if the opponent is a tighter one and his range would consist mostly of KJ, QJ and higher PPs than yours then you might want to fold to his donk, but most opponents will have much looser range. They will play plenty 6xs and also lower PPs than yours.

      Regards,
